Must Have Piece: White Jeans You Can’t See Through

White JeansLeft, $108; Right, $114

White jeans. The elusive wardrobe staple that, when done well, can make any outfit crisp and fresh. They both dress up and give a casual vibe to any look. Of course, finding a pair that fits properly and isn’t entirely see through feels almost impossible. Years ago I found a now discontinued pair of white designer jeans at an outlet (for like $40) that I wore until they were threadbare. I would have paid an absurd amount of money to replace them. I tried on every pair of white jeans in every store I frequent with no luck.

Admittedly, I’m a bit of a jeans snob. With my height and body type, designer jeans generally fit me better, but not with white jeans. In fact, it seemed like the higher the price tag, the worse the fit. After hearing good things about NYDJ’s white jeans, I gave them a try. The fit is fantastic, and you can’t see through them – AT ALL.

I’m definitely at the age when low rise jeans are just plain old uncomfortable. It doesn’t matter how toned and fit I get, after two C-Sections I feel a lot more comfortable with a rise that keeps me “in” and hits right below my belly button. These do that without feeling like stereotypical “mom jeans.”  You can see in the model images above, you can still do a little tuck with your tee.

I like their legging-style skinny jeans. But, I have tons of clients who don’t like anything too tight around their calves. NYDJ’s straight-leg option is the nicest straight cut version of any jean I’ve recently encountered. The best part is that they are right around $100 at retail and are available in petite, missy and women sizes.Shop This Post

  1. Any suggestions for white trousers for work or social you can’t see through? Love your posts- keep them coming!

    1. I wish I had one but so far everything I have found is incredibly see through! I’ll send you a note if I come across one worth looking into!

  2. I would also love to see some blush-colored options… I know blush is “in” right now and would love to pick up some blush-colored jeans that are similar to the styles you showed here.

    1. Hi Cindy, Megan, girls
      I was recently going through a lot of jeans and favored these ones from Bloomingdales exclusive

      The material is gorgeous, and the high waist is a must for me. I have one J brand with high waist Maria in Oblivion color, that’s all I want to wear now.
